Should I become a automotive mechanic?
I absolutely adore cars...i always think about them....and i was planning on going to uti and going into a dealership program for bmw or mercedes... but from what i heard the dont make much money and its a backbreaking job.... my other choice is to do an apprenticeship for plumbing and become a master plumber and start my own company..but since the economy the way it is my business will not have that many customer to thrive and an automotive technician has more job security. please any answers...they would be greatly appreciated
